Finished Homebrew Beer Brined Turkey

Well, Tommy The Turkey tasted pretty darn good!  As you can see, he turned a nice golden roasted color.  My homebrew beer brined turkey experiment was a success!

 

As far as taste, the saltiness of the brine was definitely present.  The turkey was juicy.  The flavor of the two beers I used, a pilsner and SMASH made with nugget hops, was very present, but not overpowering.  My boys loved it.  The in-laws definitely liked it.  Even my wife, who doesn’t love turkey or beer, said it was good.  Leftovers stayed very juicy and moist.  When reheated, there was a smell of brew in the air.

 

Would I do it again?  SURE WOULD!  Next time, I would definitely get the bigger ziplock bags (5 gallon size).  I may soak it for longer.  I would definitely go bigger than the 14 pound bird I used this year.
